This is easy and convenient to get to, with easy parking and good handicap access. Ocean Boulevard is an easy walk from here, with some shopping and restaurants. It has changing rooms, picnicking and some playground features, outdoor showers to rinse off the salt and...More

This is a very good controlled parking location with easy access to the ocean front. Not a park in the traditional sense of the word.

For years we visited Isle of Palms. We loved the place. We were engaged there over 23 years ago. We have been back twice this year and it has really gone down hill. Beach access is easy and cheap due to the county parking lot....More

Great area! We stopped by to see the beach. Grabbed a bite to eat and enjoyed the waves. Also got to watch the sun set. Very pretty!

If the parking isn't full, you don't pay much. There are cabanas for changing and showers for rinsing off. It's an easy way to the beach, but you can also park on the street and take many of the dozens of access paths between houses.

I agree with Curtis C, Shem Creek is awesome... Pages Okra Grill is fantastic! Huge menu and very affordable. There is a decent restaurant overlooking the backwater at Isle of Palms marina.
